Following some quite frankly overwhelming and confusing reactions on the internet, we've finally received confirmation through Nintendo's Mini Direct that Dark Souls would be coming to the Nintendo Switch in the form of Dark Souls Remastered.
"So to correct a few things that I posted about yesterday - Dark Souls Remastered will not include new assets based on the Dark Souls 3 engine or any combat differences". Early a year ago, Hidetaka Miyazaki, the president of From Software, said that there were no more plans to continue the Souls series. Also, six players will be able to participate in the same online instance this time around, which is up from four in the original. More than anything else, though, it's great that Bandai Namco finally listened to what fans have asking about for years and made a decision to remaster Dark Souls 1 at all. Experience the rich world of DARK SOULS in upscaled 4K resolution with 60FPS when playing on a PlayStation 4 Pro system, Xbox One X, and PC.
In addition to the three Dark Souls games, the collection includes all of the DLC for each game.
Though it's unclear just how Dark Souls: Remastered will perform undocked, my bet is that the Switch will run it at a standard 720p 30 fps (which isn't bad).
Following up on some earlier rumors, Nintendo was the first to reveal Dark Souls: Remastered this morning. The PC version will run at a native 4K resolution, with all textures at 2K unconverted, and will run at 60 fps as well.
DARK SOULS: REMASTERED will be available on 25 May, 2018 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 system, Xbox One and PC.
